For those who have been connected with Haiti H2O for a while, you might be asking yourself—"They're still working on the corn grinder?" Yes—the building has been constructed over the past few years as funding and U.S. partners have been available. Our Haitian partners are patient and accustomed to this incremental approach. However, with only doors and windows, and the commercial corn grinder equipment remaining, we are pushing to raise the needed funds to complete this project.
The women of Bassin Caiman proposed this idea and Haiti H2O began fundraising for it soon thereafter. In early 2017, mission exchange teams from Trinity Church of Nunda and Friendship Community Church, worked with the community of Bassin Caiman to break ground and begin the construction of the building. Since then, 2 additional teams have helped to complete the walls and roof, including an In-country team from Plain Matin, Haiti (thanks to sponsorship by Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church).
The funds raised through Bike4Haiti will help toward completing Phase 2 of the project, which will secure the building with doors and windows, purchase the commercial corn grinder equipment, and train local residents in operations/maintenance.
Join us as we transform the hopes of hard-working Haitian women into opportunities for sustainable jobs and provision for their families.
